WFYI is looking for donations of Artwork for the Fourth Annual Online Auction.
In years past the Auction has included skillful but uninspired pieces of art: that changes this year with an open call to all readers of this blog.
WFYI knows that central Indiana’s Art scene isn’t “something in the making” or “almost there” but incredibly vibrant & creative. Your work can help: All proceeds from the auction go directly to WFYI’s annual operations budget – that keeps the programs you listen to every day on the radio, shows you catch on the weekends on TV, and WFYI’s commitment to continued learning going strong.
All donations are tax deductable for their fair market value. Once donated, WFYI owns the work. If not bid upon or won during the auction may hang on the walls of our building at 1630 N Meridian. That makes it win/win: your piece makes money for WFYI or it hangs where Big Bird and Charlie Rose are broadcast.
We’re accepting whatever you can throw at us. Large scale prints to tiny paintings, a set of hand-thrown mugs to found object assemblages, conceptual video to simple photography. And not to censor, but since images of your work will be accessible to all ages we will have to refuse questionable content.
The realm of what can benefit WFYI is endless but the time line is not: gifts should be submitted by July 31st for maximum exposure to our tens of thousands of members.
Public Broadcasting is for the people, so do your part by giving some art.
To donate contact Ben Traub at (317) 614-0399, visit www.wfyi.org/auction for more information, or write an email to email@example.com today!
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and support of WFYI Public Broadcasting.
